Grierson 2013: the British documentary awards - winners announced

Following the announcement of the Grierson shortlist in August, we now have the winners.

Inevitably, perhaps, The Grierson Trust have chosen to highlight Mr Grayson Perry in their coverage of the event.  He is awarded documentary presenter of the year for his work on 'All in the best possible taste' - his exploration of British taste.  This is, of course, essential viewing! 

You can also hear Grayson deliver this year's Reith Lectures on radio 4 called 'Playing to the gallery' in which he gently, and sometimes not so gently, mocks the art world.

Many of the Greirson award winning and nominated documentaries will be available in the library or to view on Box of Broadcasts.
